Mercy is an attribute we are so in need of whenever we go before God…to be received in his Mercy; and one we are in great need of as we interact with other people. The Lord says, “Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy” Mathew 5:7. Most people would like to think of themselves as merciful. Are you merciful? Is your Mercy Bank flooding with acts of mercy or is it in deficient?
“The Word says that as he sat at table in the house, behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with Jesus and his disciples. And when the Pharisees saw this, they said to his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” But when he heard it, he said, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. Go and learn what this means, ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’ For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”
God wants his people to be alive in their hearts …love the way God loves by portraying mercy toward each other. The key to becoming a merciful person is to become a broken person. You get the power to show mercy from the real feeling in your heart that you owe everything you are and have to sheer divine mercy.”
Our mercy to each other comes from God’s mercy to us.
